Duke Nukem Forever Delayed Forever. I Mean to June

Duke Nukem Forever will now be released on 14th June in North America and on the 10th June everywhere else. It was scheduled to be released worldwide in early May but they seem to have been too optimistic with that date.
Whatever is making Gearbox Software delay the game must be significant because of the new date set. Of course Duke Nukem Forever the game is use to delays and such so this should have been expected. At least Gearbox Software seems to be seeing the funny side of things.
Duke Nukem Forever was scheduled to be released more than a decade ago but the wait shouldn’t be must longer for Duken Nuken fans. However it better be worth it in the end.

Duke Nukem Forever Reborn

Duke Nukem Forever was first announced in 1997, and became a legendary project for it never likely to be released.

3D Realms went bust in May 2009 thanks to a lack of funding, and was subsequently sued by Take-Two over lack of delivery for $12 million. Take-Two retained the rights to the game. Rumours surfaced at E3 that Gearbox was now in charge of the project.

Gearbox has confirmed that Duke Nukem Forever will be finally released, with boss Randy Pitchford confirming the game is coming next year. Pitchford has confirmed the game will release on PC, 360 and PS3.

In a short movie, the Duke was shown lighting a cigar, saying he’d “hit” a monster with tits and taking a piss in a toilet. Aliens, pig monsters and vehicle combat were also show.
